Modeling of synchronous static compensator (STATCOM) of a power system based on the dynamic phasor model to investigate the performance of STATCOM for power quality analysis is described. It is compared with electromagnetic transient program (EMTP) like simulation. The dynamic phasor model and electromagnetic transient (EMT) model of the STATCOM including the power system are implemented in Matlab/Simulink toolbox and PSCAD/EMTDC, respectively. STATCOM dynamic phasor model including switching functions and their control system are presented. A satisfactory solution for power quality problems on typical distribution network is analyzed using the dynamic phasor model and EMTP like PSCAD/EMTDC simulation techniques. The simulation results revealed that the dynamic phasor model of STATCOM is in excellent agreement with the detailed time-domain EMT model of PSCAD/EMTDC simulation. The dynamic behavior of STATCOM using phasor model can be applied for analyzing power quality issues. It is found faster in speed and higher accuracy can be obtained and correlates well with PSCAD/EMTDC simulation results. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
